Earlier this year, David Bowie was asked by a UK newspaper to compile a selection of 12 songs from his own catalog for a limited edition giveaway CD titled iSELECT: BOWIE. Rather than submitting a surface-skimming list of top hits, Bowie delivered an unexpectedly personal, career-spanning selection of recordings he “never seems to tire of,” including two exclusive tracks, with his own insightful notes. Bundled with the June 29, 2008 Mail On Sunday newspaper, the CD was sold out and unavailable by the next day, becoming an out-of-print collectors’ item and stirring worldwide interest. To meet demand for this eclectic and personal collection, Virgin/EMI will commercially release iSELECT: BOWIE on CD and digitally on October 14.
